The study’s secret door opened, and a man in a wheelchair slowly moved over to Yun Luo’s side.
This was an elegant, refined-like man. Between the handsome eyebrows was a touch of sadness, his skin was very pale and white; the kind of sickly white where it looked like he could collapse at any moment. Seeing him would make other people feel pity. Unfortunately, this elegant yet indifferent man happened to be sitting in a wheelchair; sickly and physically disabled, making it seem like that he couldn’t endure any heavy burdens.
“Father, when she was four you left, so you don’t know the humiliations she suffered over the years. And I, as her uncle, who had no way to stand out to defend her or protect her, caused her to become what she is today, an indifferent young woman.”
The man’s voice was like sweet spring water, it sounded very refreshing.
But, if there were other people here and heard how this man addressed Yun Luo, they would be in shock.
Everyone knows that the great General Yun Luo only had two sons. In the past, one son was more talented than the other, the Yun family’s second young master, Yun Qing Ya. When he was only fifteen years old he had already reached the pinnacle of the middle level sorcerer and was just one step away from breaking through to high-level sorcerer.
It was known, that within Long Yuan there are only two high-level sorcerers, one is the great General Yun Luo, and the other is the royal family’s strongest individual.
But it took both of them forty years to finally manage to break through the high-level sorcerer bottleneck.
And yet, back then Yun Qing Ya was only 15 years old!
Becoming a fifteen-year-old at the peak of the middle level sorcerer is a matter that would make people very proud. However, the past Yun Qing Ya who achieved his ambition seemed to forget that the tree that stands out in the forest, the wind will definitely destroy it. (tln: I think the idioms meaning must have appeared in a few translated novels already. Like the talented are scouted into their groups but if they can’t get them then they’ll destroy them.)
In the middle of a competition, he defeated his opponent and attracted the wrath of the opponent’s family. In the end, he fell from the top of a mountain, but no matter how much the world thought he was dead, they would have never thought that the supposedly dead Yun Qing Ya was actually still alive!
“Qing Ya, these years you have also worked hard.” Yun Luo laughed bitterly; guilt laced in his voice he said, “If it was not for the Yun family, you would not be hiding. The force that those people command is too strong, if they knew that you are still alive, they would definitely not let you go; and would also not forgive the Yun family.”
Yun Qing Ya slightly lowered his eyes, covering his eyes which were filled with sadness. With an indifferent calm tone, he said: “Even if I live so what? The way I am now is no different from being dead? My strength was wasted, I can only pull through with this disabled body and sneakily live. My own niece suffers humiliation outside and I cannot stand out to help her, if it was a decade ago even if you and I aren’t home, nobody would dare hurt little Feng’er. But now, for the sake of the Yun family, I can’t let anyone know that I’m still alive.”
That year, when he was chased by that force that wanted to kill him, he dragged his heavily injured body and escaped. Not even a day later, the news of his death was spread, but that force didn’t believe he died; so every day they would send people to observe the Yun family. In the end, he hid in the secret chamber, once hidden, he hid for a little over a decade.
Living in the darkness without light for a little over ten years didn’t help his illness, it only made it worse.
What left him in even more despair, was that when he was escaping from his pursuers, his Soul Realm was wasted. His strength disappeared and he could no longer cultivate.
If it wasn’t because father already lost brother and he couldn’t bear to let his father bury his own child again, then maybe, he would have ended his suffering long ago and left this world.
“Qing Ya,” hearing Yun Qing Ya’s words, Yun Luo was silent for a moment. Then said, “Even if the news that you live can’t be known outside, little Feng’er is still your niece. Now that she has grown up, it is time to let her know about you, her uncle’s existence.”
